Portrait Series for Wheaton College | College Faculty & Student Portraits

Wheaton College approached me with a project that involved taking portraits of over 40 faculty, students and staff.  The project was to be featured in their alumni magazine and the images would be used alongside quotes each individual gave.  The goal of the project was to convey a mood of contemplation, prayer, and hope.  The individuals photographed each had a 30 minute slot over the course of 3 days.  Working with available light on location, it was an exercise in reading light, composition and creative thinking and honestly was a bit stretching--a good challenge for me.  Overall I was very happy with how things turned out...here is a set of some of my favorite images.  You can view the feature in the magazine here at Wheaton College's Alumni site.
